August Mood

What I’m Looking Forward to This Month

august, what to do this month,what to eat, what to drink, what to wear

Hi friends and hello, August! Is it just me or does August seem like the Sunday of Summer? I’ve always felt that this month brings with it a little bit of blues. It doesn’t really have a holiday for us to celebrate like every other month. It always seems like a bitter sweet goodbye to the long hot summer days, as we wrap the season trying to get as much done from our Summer Bucket List as possible.

However, there’s something going on this August that I’m especially looking forward to this year… I’m going to be an Aunt, which is definitely a new hat I’m excited to wear! I can’t wait to spoil the little guy and can’t even begin to describe my excitement for my brother and sister-in-law to welcome their first child. They’re expecting a little boy, who was due to arrive today (but looks like he takes after his Auntie and will be running a little late)…

My mood board rings true, as this month will call for lots-o-coffee to get through work (which will be a total nine to wine sitch). I hope to spend these final few weekends that we have at home soaking up the sun, playing with Owen poolside or at the beach. Speaking of, he’s the reason I added this little drawing of a conch shell. I think I will forever be reminded of this summer, watching Moana over and over, again with Owen. Thankfully, I think his obsession is coming to end (or so I hope)! But, I won’t be mad if it isn’t… I love watching his face light up saying “Woah!” when the intro starts.

Overall, these images inspire me from the fashion to the art and colors that come together harmoniously to evoke the warmth and sunshine that are the heart of summer.
